Jeffrey A. Neiman is an accomplished trial attorney who focuses on white-collar defense, tax controversies, securities regulatory matters, and general litigation.

Upon graduating with honors from law school at the University of Florida, Mr. Neiman was hired as a federal prosecutor through the prestigious United States Department of Justice Attorney General’s Honors Program. For nearly nine years, Mr. Neiman worked as an Assistant United States Attorney and Trial Attorney for the Department of Justice in South Florida and in Washington, D.C.

While a federal prosecutor, Mr. Neiman received national recognition for handling complex, high profile matters including the ground-breaking and historic prosecution of Switzerland’s largest bank, UBS AG, for aiding American citizens to commit tax fraud. The landmark UBS prosecution has been featured in the national and international press and has been said to forever change the way the Internal Revenue Service and Department of Justice investigate criminal tax matters. Mr. Neiman’s government experience allows him to understand what matters in a case and what will impact its outcome.

Mr. Neiman is a frequent lecturer, panelist, and contributor at conferences on topics including offshore tax evasion, tax fraud, Ponzi schemes, and trial practice. His engagements have included events organized by the American Bar Association, Florida Bar, Anti-Money-Laundering, Audit and Compliance Forums, University of Miami School of Law, the Department of Justice’s National Advocacy Center, Florida Atlantic University, New York University, Florida Bankers’ Association, the Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning, the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, and the South Florida Tax Litigation Association.
